DIRECTIONS. 



For the convenience of the visitors, the following directions are 
given, so that a systematic examination of each room can be made : 

FIRST STORY. 

In entering the vestibule, immediately in front of the door, you 
enter the Solid South (general reception) room. 

To the right of the Solid South room is the Georgia room, and 
north of the Georgia room is the Mississippi room. 

From the Solid South room to the left you enter the Virginia 
room. 

SECOND STORY. 

The Kentucky room faces the stairway. Through this, in front, 
j'ou enter the Alabama room. 

To the right of the Kentucky room is the South Carolina room, and 
from the north of this room is the Maryland room. 

On the left of the Alabama room is the North Carolina room. 

THIRD STORY. 



On the stairway fronts the Arkansas room. From the Arkansas 
room, on the extreme right, you enter the Tennessee room ; next 
comes the Florida room ; this opens upon the Missouri room ; this

THE CONFEDERATE MUSEUM. 



The need of an organization to preserve a true and faithful record 
of the gallant struggle made by the soldiers of the South for inde- 
pendence being keenly felt, the Confederate Memorial Literary So- 
ciety was chartered and organized under the laws of Virginia, its 
object being to teach all future generations the true history of the 
war and the principles for which these soldiers laid down their lives. 

Thp Society has received from the city of Richmond the mansion 
which was occupied by the Hon. Jefferson Davis as his residence 
while he was President of the Confederacy — one of the handsomest 
houses in Richmond, and standing in spacious grounds. This house 
was used for many years as a public school. 

With indefatigable energy, the Confederate Memorial Literary 
Society, assisted by the Hebrew, Oakwood, and Hollywood Memo- 
rial Associations, and the States named in this catalogue, raised 
the funds necessary to make the house a fire-proof museum, where 
Confederate relics. Southern memorials, and the archives of the 
Southern Historical Society are collected and carefully preserved. 

A room, bearing the distinctive name, shield, and colors of the 
State it represents, is assigned to each State of the Confederacy, 
and is a repository for memorials from that State. A Regent and 
Vice-Regent are appointed to represent each State and to assume 
the care and expense of their respective rooms — collecting by loan, 
donation, or otherwise, contributions of what they think will make 
their rooms attractive. 

Original documents, pictures, music, books written during the 
war or about the war, arms, articles of any kind that will tend to 
show the habits and manner of living of the people and soldiers 
of the Southern States, from 1861 to 1865, are valuable and inter- 
esting. The Society suggests that these contributions be given as 
a memorial of some soldier, sailor, or patriot ; some battle, siege, or 
march — the memory of which the donor desires to preserve. To 
each article should be attached the name of the person who gives 
i t. an d ^recor(^)f Ui^iaijaQj^ni^^m^^^^^t it commemorates. 
^t^^^^^ff^^^^^B^ ^^^^^^^fB^^^^^^B^^^^^^BLJ.£niilJi^_Lh£Ai— niax-Ji e. 
recorded in the booK^o^n^societyT^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ 

The Museum was formally opened on February 22, 1896. 

Persons desiring to deposit relics, either by loan or gift, should 
communicate with the Regent or Vice-Regent of their respective 
States. 

The Vice-Regent of each State room, in immediate charge of the 
room, is always a resident of Richmond, Va. 



DUTIES OF REGENTS, VICE-REGENTS, AND 

ALTERNATES, 



There shall be elected by the Society, annually, fifteen Regents 
and fifteen Vice-Regents and Alternates, all women. Fourteen of 
the fifteen Regents shall, each one, severally, reside in one of the 
Southern States, and shall be called the Regent of the State in 
which she shall reside, and the fifteenth shall be a Southern woman, 
and shall be called the Regent of the Solid South. All of the Vice- 
Regents shall reside in the city of Richmond, Va. 

The duties of the Regents shall be to collect relics, portraits, 
memorials, etc., for their State rooms, and to forward funds for 
their proper maintenance to the Vice-Regents representing them in 
Richmond. 

The duties of the Vice-Regents shall be to take charge of the 
State rooms assigned to them, receive and collect funds, relics, me- 
morials, etc. They shall place all articles where they will be 
plainly exhibited and carefully protected. They shall make a full 
report at each annual meeting of the work accomplished during the 
year, and of funds received and disbursed, which report, or a sum- 
mary thereof, will be published, if deemed practicable, in the news- 
papers. Bach Vice-Regent shall nominate her Alternate, who shall 
be elected by the Society. In the absence of the Vice-Regent, she 
shall have the same powers and duties. Failure on the part of a 
Vice-Regent to attend to the duties of her oflBce for six months, with- 
out sufficient excuse, wjll be considered a resignation.

Letter Written by Mr. Andrew Carpenter, One of General J. E. B.

Madison Mills, Va., July 18, 1892. 
Mrs. J. Taylor Ellyson: 

Dear Madam, — In reply to your favor of June 21st, I have General 
Stuart's haversack, which was given me by Mrs. Stuart the day after 
the General's death in Richmond. I was assigned to General Stuart 
in March, 1862, at Centreville, because I had the finest horse in Com- 
pany A, Fourth Virginia Cavalry, and I stayed with him until he was 
shot at Yellow Tavern. I held his head in my lap from there to Rich- 
mond in an ambulance, and I stayed with him until he died next night, 
about 8 P. M., and laid him out. 

The last thing he said was : " I would like to live to see the war 
ended, and to see my wife once more." Mrs. Stuart arrived about an 
hour after his death. She felt grateful to me, I suppose, for my atten- 
tion to the General, and gave me his haversack, which, I assure you, I 
have kept asja sacred memento of him whom I admired above all others 
in our army. I part with it most reluctantly, but I feel it my duty to 
do so, knowing it will be preserved long after my death. I send it by 
express to your address. Please do me the favor to have his name 
inscribed on it, and by whom presented to the Society, with a short his- 
tory of it. 

Wishing you success in your noble enterprise, I am, 

Yours truly, Andrew Carpenter. 

This letter is the best history of the self-sacrificing gift of the 
haversack that could be prepared, and therefore it is published.

The late Dr. Everard DeRenne bequeathed to the Georgia Room: 
"The Mary DeRenne (of Georgia) Collection." 

Mrs. Mary DeRenne, of Savannah, Ga., was his mother, an enthu- 
siastic Georgian, and patriotic Confederate. Soon after the close 
of the War between the States, finding that an officer of the North- 
ern army was making a collection of Southern relics, she felt that 
that there were few in the South who had the means to do the same, 
but that it ought to be done. She determined at once to begin, and 
while life lasted she spared neither effort nor expense in gathering 
relics, books, papers, and all that added to their value. Mrs. De- 
Renne soon found that persons were glad to put together what made 
history, when isolated relics or papers told so little. The result now 
tells an absorbing story. (1898.)

ELECTION OF OFFICERS. 

The election of Officers, Regents, Vice-Regents, Alternates, and the 
Advisory Board shall be held at the regular November meeting, or at 
a meeting specially called for that purpose after the November meeting, 
and preceding December 6th. The terms of all oflBcers shall begin at 
the annual meeting. Written notice of the meeting for the election of 
oflScers shall be sent to every woman member of the Society. 

All officers shall be nominated by an informal ballot and elected 
by ballot. Regents, Vice-Regents, Alternates, and the Advisory Board 
may be nominated from the floor and shall be elected by ballot. 



298 By-Laws. 

When, in the interest of fairness, secret nominations are desired, 
each person may write the name of her favorite candidate upon a slip 
of paper. When these are collected they are called the informal ballot, 
because the formality of naming the person through a committee ©r in 
open session is not observed. 

Each person voted for in this manner is a nominee. If none receive 
a majority on the informal ballot, the formal ballot is taken until one 
does receive a majority of all votes cast. 

In the election of officers, the person receiving the lowest number of 
votes must be dropped, and cannot be re-nominated at that meeting. 
If in the first ballot one candidate receives a majority of all votes cast, 
it is then in order to move that the informal be made the formal ballot, 
and that the Secretary be instructed to cast the ballot. 

A majority of the votes cast shall be necessary to an election.
